Doma speaks

F Natalie Doma sounded optimistic in an interview with the Idaho State Journal regarding her being cut on Thursday.
“I’m just taking this experience and moving on with it,” she said. “The coaches were all very positive about releasing me. They had good things to say. It’s just kind of what happened, and I have a bright future ahead of me.”
Doma plans to play in France beginning Sept. 30 and she’ll also try out for the Canadian national team, being a native of Victoria, B.C. Those experiences coupled with confidence should make the free agent ready for the WNBA next season.
“It challenged me, and I stepped up the challenge some of the time,” the Idaho State grad told the newspaper. “This level is definitely a step above the college level and being able to be here for a few weeks will help me. It was probably one of the hardest things I had to do. I’m used to being in class. [But] They were very positive, and they just wished me the best of luck.
“The future’s bright, that’s what I’m hearing a lot.”
Doma, like most who glance over the Storm roster, was star struck by the names of All-Stars and all-decade players. And that’s before co-captains Sue Bird and Lauren Jackson had a chance to arrive.
“It’s like the dream team, and I feel very honored to be able to play with these players and have met them,” Doma said.
